    I have worked at Taco Bell for almost a year and within that year the company has given me nothing but hell. I am a hard worker always came to work, on time stayed late would come in on my days off help out in any way i could. On and off i had recieved many hour cuts going from 30 and up hours down to 12 to 17 a week hours, taking major cuts to my pay check. Asking why they cut my hours i was given no response. recently receiving new management, she (Lisa) said things would get better everyone would receive hours. recently i had went to the hospital 3 different times due to illness all three times i had brought my work a doctors note exclaiming i could not work around people or food due to the fact that i was extremly contagiouse. When i was finally able to come back to work i had talked with the new manager Lisa and she exclaimed that we would all have to fight for our hours refused to communicate with me in the work area only would speak to the spanish speaking employes. When coming to  her with my concerns she asked if i was a raciest. Later i had given her my concerns about two employes i had worked with and asked why they should be my role models when they come in 2 to 3 hours late, have multiple no call no shows and have cussed a the managers yet they are my role models? a week later the two employess had been told by Lisa the head manager that i was talking badly about them and their work and laughing at my medical illness. putting me down and making the work place difficult to endure. I did not feel welcome working their so i started searching for ways to receive a transfer. When trying to contact my general manager John, he avoided me refused my calls i had to harrass him for 4 days to finally get ahold of him, he asked if i would meet him for coffie miles away from the work place on my free time, Uncomftrable with this i went to another taco bell store and asked if there was any  way i could move their without a transfer. Knowing Lisa and John were not wanting to give me one..

when i had come back to work i sat down with Lisa yet again asked her why my hours had been cut again and why she told the employes of our discussion she refused to talk with me and than called john whom decieded a termination was best due to the fact i had asked to be transferd to another taco Bell location. This was almost 4 days ago and i have not yet received my termination check or a proper reason for termination.... when asking i was given my multiple absences and call outs yet this cant be the case every absence/ call out i came in the same day and gave them either a doctors note or an emergency room note. confused i do not no what to do

Here's a copy of the Colorado law governing, final pay...


Payment of Final Wages

Termination of Employment by the Employer

When an interruption in the employer-employee relationship by volition of the employer occurs, the wages or compensation for labor or service earned, vested, determinable, and unpaid at the time of such discharge are due and payable immediately, EXCEPT:

When the employer's accounting unit, responsible for the drawing of payroll checks, is not regularly scheduled to be operational, then the wages due the separated employee shall be made available to the employee no later than six hours after the start of such employer's accounting unit's next regular workday.

If the accounting unit is located off the work site, the employer shall deliver the check for wages due the separated employee no later than twenty-four hours after the start of such employer's accounting unit's next regular workday to one of the following locations selected by the employer:

a) the work site,
b) the employer's local office,
c) the employee's last-known mailing address.
Note: It is the policy of the Division of Labor that mailing of wages due to a separated employee is acceptable when the postmark is dated within the specified time periods as described above. For example, an employer with an off-site accounting unit may mail wages due to the separated employee via regular mail as long as the mailing is postmarked no later than twenty-four hours after the start of the accounting unit's next regular workday.

Hope this helps.

RIght to work

AUTHOR: Ashley - (U.S.A.)

Colorado is a right to work state and they can fire you for any reason or no reason at all EXCEPT for illegal reasons (Sex, religion, country of origin, Age, and race) and colorado has no law in place requiring the employer to inform you why you were fired.

basicaly, if they don't want to tell you why you were fired then they don't have to. If you think it was for an illegal reason you need to hire a lawyer. I am also not sure are to the specific rules on last paychecks in colorado. I know that in Missouri they are supposed to give you the last check upon termination and if they don't you can sue them. Some states allow the check to come on the regular payday though, so check your state labor laws. Additionally, unless you filed for FMLA over your illnesses, your employer is perfectly justified in firing you over an illness even with a doctor's note.
